Topic: Inclusive Workplaces with Agile Principles
Speaker: Priscilla Bakx-Kabai, PMI ATP-I and PMO Officer (LinkedIn)
Guest: Billy S. Mwape, PMP, Head Of Information Technology, FNB Zambia (LinkedIn)
Date and time: Sat, October 15, 2022, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM CEST
Creating an inclusive working environment is not a one-and-done process. Some of the questions that many people ask today include:
- Is my organization replicating systems or practices that may exclude certain individuals?
- Does my organization provide equitable access to professional development and career progression opportunities?
- How inclusive is engagement across all levels of the organization?
Agile is a mindset and way of working that allows teams to leverage their unique skillsets and competencies to deliver value to stakeholders in a fast and adaptive manner.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) encompass the efforts that any organization can take to create a welcoming and supportive environment for all their employees. These two concepts go hand in hand, yet in many organizations, the opposite is true.
During this webinar, we will explore how Agile and DE&I are symbiotic and how these can be integrated side by side into workplace transformations. We will cover the following topics:
- Introduction to Agile: The Agile Manifesto, Mindset and Principles.
- Agile Practices & Inclusion: Transparency, Inspection & Adaptation.
- Agile Servant Leadership & Inclusion: Visionary Coach and Mentor.
- Agile Teams & Inclusion: Plan Together, Demo together, Learn together
- Live Q&A session
